"install"? What exactly aren't you allowed to do? Put things in
/usr/local? Use up a lot of disk space? Leave stuff in the
filesystem overnight? Write things to the filesystem at all?
I wonder if you could write a C module to do the job; it would
probably run a lot quicker, and it would probably be about a page of
simple code. You could run it from your local directory, just like
you run a Python module.

What are their relative magnitudes?
